Hi all,

We've just been asked by one of our users:

> Tracejob shows the memory (and virtural memory) used by
> a program. Is that the peak memory used? Average memory
> used? or what. 

Now we know that tracejob grabs stuff out of the PBS logs,
but the question is still are the numbers that are recorded
there the:

1) Maximum usage
2) Average usage
3) Usage when job ended (or last measured)
4) Something else

Any ideas ?
